Topic Work



In Upper Key Stage 2 our topics are largely based on history, geography or DT. We have a question based format where children are presented with a question each week and learning opportunities are planned that help the children to answer the question.

Topic lessons take place twice each week and are taught in mixed ability classes with their class teacher.  Learning is differentiated to match the children's knowledge, skills and progress.  In addition links are made with other lessons such as English, Maths, PE, Art, Science, Music and Computing to ensure that children are fully engaged with the Topic.

The chart below details what Topic and questions the children will be learning over the next term.
